So let’s say you have just begun dating this girl – or have been dating her for the last few weeks or months. Whatever, sex is good, and assuming your lady isn’t yet menopausal (hey, whatever floats your boat), or has some kind of hang up about sharing that kind of information with you, at some point you’re going to be faced with the reality of that wrench being thrown into your plans for the night or weekend.
Why It’s your Problem
Since you’re not a caveman, you have at least a basic knowledge of the usual side effects accompanying this monthly phenomenon, such as stomach cramps, mood swings, headaches. You might be less familiar with others like nausea, vomiting, and even diarrhea. Other than losing out on possible sex, you might not feel like this has anything to do with you, but it’s not like that time when you moved in with a mate for a few days because a pipe burst in your flat. This is one mess you want to stick around for to make sure you’re covered. At least if you want to move back in as soon as things dry out. Look to her for your cues. What your sex life looks like in the week to come, and beyond, will depend on her.
She Wants to Get it On
You don’t mind the blood. Honestly, she doesn’t care if you mind the blood. Her hormones are raging and she wants to get laid. This happens to some girls. Lucky you. Lay a towel down and get a leg over. You don’t need us to tell you what to do. We’ll state only this – that it’s not a good idea to put her on top. While a good swipe with a towel will get your dick clean (enough), nothing but a shower will get blood out of pubes. If the sight of blood makes you nauseated, or the whole idea turns you off, you might want to consider getting over it. There’s more at stake here than your sensitive stomach, like your future sex life. Turn the lights off and imagine that she’s extra wet, just for you.
She doesn’t Want to Get it On
This is the likely scenario. The effort you expend on trying to simultaneously cheer her up and get her in the mood will depend on how much you like this girl and how needy she’s being. This isn’t being calculating or whipped, this is an investment. But don’t go too overboard. She’s not dying or giving birth to your firstborn. If you’ve never given her flowers before, don’t bring the daisies out now. What you don’t want to do is create a standard that you’re not able, or have no intention of trying to live up to.
One easy thing you can do is to make a point of keeping to your usual schedule. If you usually call her Friday nights to see what she’s up to, keep doing so. If you treat her like an untouchable now she’ll remember. She’ll probably still fuck you, but our bet is that you’ll pay later in myriad ways even we can’t predict. You’re smarter than that. Suck it up. It’s just one week.
